Stand Out Fact
US Navy veteran, served greenside with the Marine Corp.
Tranquility Dental Wellness stands out by being a veteran-owned, woman-owned, 100% dentist-owned organization that does more than just dentistry. It’s an organization with a deep, spirited team culture of empowerment, continual personal and professional growth, and self-development. The core values (accountability, dedication, abundance, positivity, teamwork, servant leadership) are the guiding principles in how the team treats patients, treats each other, and makes decisions for the patients and organization.
Dr. Lori Noga founded Tranquility Dental Wellness in 2012, where she set out to break the mold of how dentistry has traditionally been done. Her concept of “Experience Affordable Luxury” began with a vision to take the fear out of dentistry by removing barriers patients see and feel by offering a luxurious, spa-like atmosphere and a team of amazing employees who deliver a five-star experience every time.
Before opening Tranquility Dental Wellness, Dr. Noga began her journey not as a dentist but as an actuary, and it didn’t take long for her to realize her passion was not limited to statistical models and spreadsheets; it really was about empowering others to put their fears aside and reach for opportunity. She left her actuarial job and attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, earning her Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) in 2007. After completing dental school, Dr. Noga served as an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy and worked alongside the U.S. Marine Corp in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. She enjoyed the vast experience she gained in the military and is proud to have served along the brave men and women who sacrifice so much in serving our nation. After her time with the Navy, she relocated to Washington state with her husband and opened Tranquility Dental Wellness.
On a daily basis, Dr. Noga loves to find opportunities for growth in any situation and works hard to inspire those around her to feel safe in doing the same. She acknowledges that there is a lot of “ugly” on the path to self-development, growth and success, but she is moved by the beauty in seeing patients and team members be vulnerable, be bold and transform into better versions of themselves.
